>> hope you are doing well on this first full day of fall. we saw strong thunderstorms last night, but everything is quiet right now. all of the showers and storms are over the great lakes. that front is hovering, but not generating rainfall, and it will clear the area of much cooler air late friday into early saturday. it is all about the heat. we are surging above normal in. if we are already into the low 80's downtown. it is much warmer to the south. mid-80's already. if you take the state wide tour, in the mountains we will hit 80 degrees. hear, a cloud and sunshine mixed, but searching the mercury up to 88 degrees. on the lower eastern shore, same story. partly cloudy, 87.
